Landale Street.

Have you tried Beef & Liberty burgers?

Not yet. It's on my list.

I am considering a shirt order with Ascot Chang. I understand they have a 3 shirt minimum order, therefore I will probably be picking from the house fabrics to start.

 

Would someone be able to help me out on pricing?

There is no minimum order. House fabric is about HKD 1700. TM silver line is HKD 2100 or 2150.
The raised a price about 25% over a year or so.

I received my second order from Gordon Yao and also had a chance to break in the first GY suit over the last couple of months. Here are my impressions:

There should be no question that WWChan finishes the suit to a much higher degree in relation to GY. The buttonholes are so perfect on WWChan with every stitch of the buttonhole is in-line and evenly spaced. The pick stitching on the edges etc are far superior to GY but that is not to say GY is a slouch. GY is also finished to quite a high degree but when put next to WWChan, WWChan is the winner.

However, even though WWChan is softer, higher finishing. perhaps because of it's softness, it doesn't mold to the body as my GY does. Over the past few months, the GY feels like it has molded itself after I worn it a few times, something I never felt with the WWChan. When though the WWChan is softer handwise, the GY has shaped itself much better and feels just as soft when wearing it.

Such perfect button holes as you suggest seem more likely to have been machine made, the human eye and hand is more likely to have imperfections, similarly with pick stitching.

I use both as well. My WW chan suits fit just a bit better and seem a bit more stylish. The interlinings, buttons etc also seem higher quality. I use GY for warm weather suits because everything is just a bit lighter.

I think they do have minimum order (3) per my experience. Thanks.

It is weird. It seems we continue to hear from members who were requested to make 3 minimum and who were not. Does it depend on store?? The one I used are IFC and Prince bldg.

Anyway i think for the initial orders better to insist on 1 order to improve the pattern and fit.

So I got fitted up by Nelson at the Peninsula a few weeks back.

 

3 shirt minimum order, they make one as a trial - then you get a fitting, and more than 1 if you're in Hong Kong/you need it - and prices from their house fabrics were $200USD/shirt, but that inc shipping back to Australia. 

 

Lovely service, great eye, would go back no hesitation.

These are for weekend wears.

The quasi-nolfork is a Loro Piana 100% cahsmere, the the navel DB is a crombie 100% cashmere.

Again I am very pleased with the outcome.

Thanks. This is very helpful as my intention is also to get fitted by Nelson. 

 

The minimum order is quite a downer though. US$600 is a significant initial outlay.
